    The MINI Countryman may be, you know, British, but that hasn’t stopped Italian tuning house Romeo Ferraris from creating a special edition in celebration of Italy’s 150th anniversary as a nation.

    The festive MINI is based on the flagship Countryman Cooper S that is powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol churning out 184-horses and a peak torque of 240Nm. After Romeo Ferraris technicians remap the ECU and add a new intercooler, a sports air filter and a race-spec exhaust system, the aforementioned numbers grow to 227HP and 328Nm (241.9 lb-ft).

    Other performance modifications include a height-adjustable suspension, a beefy Brembo braking system and 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped around in Yokohama Advan Sport tires size 225/40/R19.

    The new two-tone alloys wheels match the styling upgrades that include a matte blue foil wrap for the body and a silver hue for the twin stripes on the hood and rear hatch, as well as the roof. There is also a blacked out grille and new tail pipes.

    For the interior, Romeo Ferrari dressed the seats and door panels in white leather with blue piping, while also decorating the seats with the Italian flag.

    After watching those clips of the WRC car in Finland, I'm guessing this one would do fine at MOTD. :Thumbsup:
